At this rate the numbers in the military are definately go to show a decline. I wonder what the total number of defections is now? Have you heard if the 3 pilot defections took jets with them into Jordan?

Many units of the Syrian army are confined to there barracks as the Syrian regime doesn't trust them.
As for defections i have read 13 Generals so far.
